Cause

The version of Java included with Symantec Endpoint Protection 14.2 Maintenance Patch 1 (SEP 14.2 MP1) (and later releases) does not support the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 operating system.

Environment

Microsoft Windows Server 2008

Resolution

Symantec no longer supports installing Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 as of Symantec Endpoint Protection 14.2 Maintainence Patch 1 (SEP 14.2 MP1). You must upgrade your operating system to Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (or newer) for continued operation of the SEPM.
